Product Description

From AudioFile

The first Kirk McGarvey novel hit the shelves in 1989, as the Cold War was ending. At the time, the former Soviet Union was still America's main security concern. This novel follows former spy McGarvey as he returns to the fold to probe a car-jacking that left two CIA operatives dead and to seek out a mole. Bruce Watson reads with a tough no-nonsense style, sounding at times like Walter Winchell narrating "The Untouchables." His style lends itself well to action scenes, but much of the dialogue is overdone. McGarvey's lines often sound like shouting, rather than the cool menace intended. This reading could have been a lot more fun with a lighter touch.

Format: Paperback
This book was certainly a letdown from other Hagberg books that I have read in the past.Not even aaltime McGarvey villain Baranov could save this book. There was little or no action in this book. This book consisted of a great deal of dialogue between McGarvey and the other characters. There are little or no action sequences that have been a trademark in other Hagberg books. This definitely must have been one of his first books.He got much better in his later writings. I know why this book is unavaliable for purchaese. It is to boring to read. Buy his other books. You will like them much better.

I am a huge fan of David Hagberg. I have read all of his books and thought they were all great. This one was the exception, it was slow paced with little if any action. I know this was an early work. I had read the others before getting back to this one, so I was used to the fast pace action packed novels. Outside of Kirk the characters were bland. I guess i expected a bit more from Baronov and company. I'm just going to forget about this one. I don't think one rotten apple will spoil the bunch.

Hagberg's BEST - and sue me if you think different April 21 2003
By T Galazka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book, in my opinion, is the best Hagberg EVER wrote. I've read a few of the later Kirk McGarvey volumes, and they seem almost like an exercise in "writing by numbers", when compared to this one. Examples? You need examples? Introducing "significant others" so that they would be blown up or away in the next volume of the saga might be a nice one. I know, the plot has to get moving somehow, but we've all seen that in Bond movies. Then, of course, McGarvey turns into an aging killing machine, dispatching the enemies like pop-up targets (they don't have much more depth, anyway). Boring and predictable. I'd rather have unpretentious fun with Remo Williams!
In "Without Honor", on the other hand, the tone is sombre, almost like an AmE adaptation of a James Le Carre novel, with a high level of complexity and betrayals galore (instead of the token moronic and still scheming DDO of the CIA in the later volumes - did I use the word "boring" already?). Almost no gun-totin' action to speak of, as McGarvey is carried away by events beyond his ken and control, and ever more confused with every new betrayal and switch in apparent loyalties.
Really, a good one. As opposed to the mediocre showing in later instalments.

A Good Read! Aug. 3 2012
By foxtrotoscar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a fast paced espionage story with flinty dialog and tough, no-nonsense dealings with bad guys. The plot has many twists and turns to keep the reader on the edge of his seat, along with a surprise ending. Don't miss it.

The begining it fills in the background July 19 2012
By Margaret C. Barncord - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After the begining the story heats up. (There is too much sex which cuts into the action.) The wrap-up had surprises and the ending was unexpected. Some of the names are simular.
